Regal hotel turns out to be by far the best hotel amongst the ones that I have ever stayed in Matheran. It provides an excellent family vacation experience. The rooms are pretty much spacious, clean and hygenic. The staff is very polite and courteous, and they do their best to make the guests feel comfortable.
Other amenities like health club, games like badminton, table tennis and chess creates ample opportunity for a family to spend time at the hotel.
The swimming pool is quite spacious and clean, but just be sure to carry a proper swimming costume, especially ladies. I was taken a bit aback when they refused to allow my wife (and some other ladies too) from entering the pool wearing the usual nylon long tops, which are generally acceptable at most hotels and resorts. We did not want to spoil our vacation fun, so we just bought a new swimming costume from the hotel and enjoyed the pool.
Finally, the food quality and variety (pure-veg) provides 100% satisfaction to guests. Almost all kinds of Indian cuisines are served, which ensured that we for once committed the sin of over-eating. :) An entertainment item presented by a "Hindi melodies" karoke singer during dinner is definitely worth mentioning.
Overall the hotel provides a good 2-3 days of quality time with family.
